us that this book shows president obama as someone who likes to ask a lot of questions, they say someone who is decisive, and takes a broad view of history, national security and his role, that's from senior administration officials. the book, though, does portray a national security team that is deeply torn over the war in afghanistan. again, white house officials say that the book also shows the president who pushed to get the afghan strategy right. that's from white house officials. jon: some of the early reporting indicates that this book quotes the president in great detail. the white house gave bob woodward all kinds of access. why? >> reporter: and they always do, don't therbgs administration officials, and past presidents? this is his 16th book, the first 15 were best sellers, i mean, he's arguably the most famous journalist in the country. so the idea from an administration's point of view is to talk to bob woodward and try to manage the message, if you will, instead of having unnamed sores do that for the administration. jon: shifting gears, julie, the president's top e
across the country and around the world right now. our domestic desk, covers the u.s., our foreign desk, watching events around the globe, and our media desk, bringing in all the video and live pictures for you, 24 hours a day. jenna: as we speak the president is holding back-to-back meetings with his economic team and then secretary of state hillary clinton. all this as the president is preparing to roll out a new business investment tax break. this is just the latest effort to jump start the economy and create new jobs. the republicans are saying it's just a little too late. wendell goler, live at the white house, with more on this. wendell, what can you tell us about the latest economic proposal? >> jenna, it's a tax break that would let businesses write off the entire cost of new capital investments, that's land, pw-g and machineries, through the end of next year. now, the idea is to get businesses to make some of these big ticket purchases that may have -- they may have been putting off and that may mean more business for manufacturers, for construction workers, and give a boost to

rally with the president on stage with blumenthal because mcmahon's campaign will use that against him, if you believe, to essentially say he's the washington insider, he's the establishment guy, i'm the outsider, vote for me. so there are risks and there are rewards with bringing a sitting president in, especially when you're fighting for the independent vote, jon. jon: he can raise that money. mike emanuel at the white house, thanks. jenna: in business news now, more americans lost their homes last month than any time in the entire crisis. that means the bank actually went in, took away the hole and kicked families out. on foreclosure news it's different. eric bolling is here at the business desk from the fox business network to help us work through some of the numbers. >> they're bad numbers, jenna. i brought my card. prices are down. let's stay on the foreclosure number real quick. in august, 95,358 homes were foreclosed on, the banks took them back. 3 percent jump from the prior month. doesn't sound like much but that's seven months in a row. but get this, 25 percent jump from 200
